    Progress Report Video
    Posted on //

    Seattle Public Schools has made some changes to the progress reports families receive each trimester for elementary students. As you may know, a few years ago, Washington state adopted new College and Career Readiness Standards (known as Common Core). Like all districts in the state, Seattle Public Schools has been training teachers on these standards so that the district would be ready for the new statewide tests that will be given this spring to students in grades 3-8 and 11. Those tests, known as Smarter Balanced, will cover standards in English Language Arts and Math. The state will continue to test students in Science using the MSP, administered in grades 5 and 8.

    To reflect these new English Language Arts and Math standards, the district has revised its Elementary Progress Report. Families will see updated standards in the areas of English Language Arts, Math and Learning Behaviors. Because the new College and Career Readiness Standards (Common Core) cover only English Language Arts and Math, standards in other subject areas like Science are not changing.

    Please view the following video to learn more about these changes: http://vimeo.com/110191805. Your student’s classroom teacher will review the progress report during your child’s conference in November.
